Crash Course In Bear Market Survival
Date: Tuesday, October 7, 2014
Time: 2pm ET | 11am PT
Market crashes are not unknown in the month of October, and with the market currently at record highs, investors are especially nervous.
Investors are more apt to miss opportunities waiting for the stock market to crash while others will sell in panic when it finally does crater. But such portfolio disasters don't need to happen if investors let market history guide them.
